From Over-Subscription to Hyper-Subscription

I’m sick and tired of virtual machines. They’re a significant waste of my compute resources. My laptops fan always starts spinning when I start up a virtual machine. But with container based workflows, I’ve never heard my fan go on. Even better, I’ve never had to re-build kernel moduels to get the latest version to work.

When I think of the production environments that I’ve deployed, and all the wasted RAM and storage, I get kinda sad.

My goal is to automate hardware and make containerization AWESOME.

Containers will let us Hyper-Subscribe our datacenters, without some magic from VMWare to share memory segments between OSes.
